Left - Hwy 7B & Hwy 35 North Junction Assembly on Eastbound Hwy 7 near Lindsay. Until the 1990s, Lindsay had three different "B" Business Routes leading into downtown from adjacent Hwy 7, Hwy 35 and Hwy 36. Although many of these business routes are still signed today, only a small section of Hwy 7B west of Lindsay is still under provincial jurisdiction.

Right - Turn-off guide signs for the Hwy 7B & Hwy 35 North Junction on Eastbound Hwy 7 near Lindsay. The route of Hwy 7B generally follows the original alignment of Hwy 7 through Lindsay, before the Lindsay Bypass was opened to traffic in 1958. The route of Hwy 7B is still signed through Lindsay, although the only portion of the highway that is under provincial jurisdiction is the short 800-metre section that runs concurrently with Hwy 35 North.
